>> good afternoon aaron starr planning staff. the item bruce before you is a department supported ordinance to amend the sections of the planning code to restraining order reorganize time tables to update and semiimply code language i presented that on june 20, 2013, and looked at it october i was overlook optimistic other than the timing but the year it took to bring this forward was good we hosted two meeting and drafted the 4 hundred and 60 page odd ordinance and have the city attorney reviewed the ordinance and signed it which took 5 months. today, we're asking toy initiate in orients and set the
1:31 am
september 4th as the deposition date the organization of article 2 has been around since 1980 but until now monopoly massachusetts has been crazy enough to organize it and they have also their own set of articles they have the zoning control tables that lists standards and controls in one table and providing the reader one single source for every zoning district article two on the other hand, only lists the use and the distinction of the table that makes tables long and lengthy. the department buildings that the zoning tables are a way to convey information in the planning code and one of the main components of this ordinance is remove the article two and roman numeral them with
1:32 am
the articles in articles 7 and 8 and to consolidate all the use dngsz as well as other definitions few and far between ideas in the code the goal is to have all the zoning districts a in the planning code reference one definition. the phase one in the 3 phase process if approved by the board of supervisors it will amend articles 7 and 8 and consolidated the definitions. let me stress our intention to make a few subsequential changes as less as possible and there are also two subsequential changes from the northeast ordinances have been reviewed and voted on as follows: non-conforming surface parking lots built before 1985 are not
1:33 am
grandfathered and xherthd and the new used for the unknown conforming use will require conditional use approval it is principally permitted even if the use established an industrial use those are left out of your case report and this commission has weighed in on those to recap those are extremely large over 4 hundred and 60 pages not to make land use controls that are not voted on by the commission the goals are to reorganize article 2 aren't lists the dings and that all districts reference one set
1:34 am
of use dings. over the next month and a half the department will look at the provisions and the public will look at those and weigh in and we'll welcome their feedback this only initiate our opinion and didn't vote on this but merely begins the 20 day noticing period that concludes my racks thank you very much for your time and attention >> opening up for public comment (calling names)
1:35 am
sir. >> thank you. bernard i represent san francisco tomorrow. those facts finding presumably by the court of appeals this violates prop mrgs the consistency with the general plan. and that increases the disabilities and it can't be decide by itself various entities in the court of appeals. customarily such impact effects forces impacts for the purchase of land the increased density for the construction or occupancy there's no mitigation with regard foshgs for example,
1:36 am
the thirty thousand appropriate unit that go on the market every year and terms of the affordable housing regarding earthquake city no mitigation this - excuse me. this sun staff edition is preceding in bad faith thank you for your attention >> thank you. is there any additional public comment. >> partner. >> i'm asking if there's is there any additional public comment. >> from me. >> no members of the public. >> bay you have submissions prior to this. >> seeing no further public comment oh, i'm sorry. come forward and
1:37 am
>> good afternoon in regards to the resolution to initiate article 2 i have a few reasons i don't think the clock should start the item description says article it most people don't know what article 2 is it should say something like the general opening provisions to say this is what article 23 is is about and in addition there is no real outreach or planning process that was meaningful to the public yes two meetings helped in 2013 i went to the second one there were only 3 people there
1:38 am
and and at the june coalition meeting last week, i ask do organizations first of all, they didn't know what article 2 was and no one raised their hands there's not a lot of noticing and this thing in superior court on the overhead the city has this thing with superiority they're not relying on the housing a lot of things maybe have passed but a lot of it is new and it's not really exactly with the current ordinance say is when you start looking at the tables each box changes the nuance what da can be allowed and some things not there's
1:39 am
conditional use so it's not clear and some of the things that are in regards to small business parking there's a gamete of things in the article 1 that's not mentioned the title or article 1 there's many things the public wouldn't be knowing of we shouldn't start the process today. >> good afternoon commissioner first of all, i want to thank commissioner sugaya for his service in the past. and your comment you're an intellectual and insightful person i hope the other commissioners will take up the task and the commission will
1:40 am
provide protection for the quality of life in regards to item 2 it's the same as linda explained very well. no one knows about the things night life you're in the planning department. i learned at the meeting back in august of 2013 was a while back i think we need another series of outreach community meetings and i'm concerned that without those owners that are being passed the holding capacity of the city the infrastructure, the water, small business and transit those issues are not seriously being considered i've said any time in the past while we're building our infrastructure especially the transit has not kept up, in fact, it's degrading so the
1:41 am
planning commission has done a great job but let transit catch otherwise our quality of life and service is more negative. so i hope in the future we give serious consideration especially to issues like water. right away we're in a tremendous water issue problem and now it has a double edge sword our needs and population is increasing and our resources are diminishing. sfafts article 2 we need outreach and some more meetings. thank you. >> is there any additional public comment seeing none, public comment is closed director ram. >> commissioners first of all, i want to thank aaron starr for
1:42 am
a year and a half worth of work something that planning people can only enjoy which is reorganizing the chart of the code that doesn't change the code but makes it easier and clarify for the members of the public who testified this is there's nothing in this proposal that increases densities or changes something that's a conditional use if the idea is to make this chapter that is very complicated inconsistent with other parts the code there was nothing in here that will change the approval process. >> thank you commissioner antonini. >> yeah. mr. star i have a question thank you yourself your work and obviously have to go
1:43 am
over this in more detail before we get to the approval stage you mentioned surfaces parking lot this is to condition their operation if they get conditional use but not parking garages. >> no, this is for parking lots and this is part of the owners that the commissioners reviewed a couple of years ago and it's been lagging but still moving forward albeit it slowly and i'll have to look at it closely i want to make sure there's nothing in here that is subsequential most of it is reorganization but we had something along those links a couple of the we ended up
1:44 am
abandoning formula retail that was sandwiched in with a lot of housekeeping things we voted for that it was my fault and other for not reading the fine print. right i've tried the reason there are one hundred and 16 uses now in this owners is because i didn't delete anything we have the pat and delivery stables i've tried to maintain such as i can the staff report in september will be more thorough but there's not that big of a change so - >> thank you. commissioner sugaya >> yes. in the cross outs and the under lines and everyone in
1:45 am
the body of the ordinance itself were there lined out sections are some of those lined out sections - how shall i say this - human resources there are lined out sections introductions in other parts of the ordinance that could replace that go to page 1 61 it's easier to give an example. so for example, you have a whole section about 2/3rd's of the page that is lined out correct and those refer to such things as accessory uses and section c refers to antennas on buildings
1:46 am
are all those cross outs intended to be replaced by hindu u unhealthy noise emissions >> it crows out those northeast ordinances and the idea with the northeast ordinance to take out to replace with performance measures. >> but in other parts of the document were there cross outs would a replacement of that language be somewhere else. >> no, it should be there but in some instances we took out location and operation requirements moved to another
1:47 am
section to not immediately clear. >> right. >> the way judy organized it if the language is not being removed intirl but appearing in other section they're not new she did with with the anticipation so people knew where it was coming from. >> and one last question i ran into it on page one hundred 65. >> i like that you actually looked at it. >> i didn't read everything. some of it it caught my eye on section 201 a we're going adding language existing language says we'll be rounding down but then we're adding language that says except in the mom and dad's
1:48 am
we're going to round them up is that coming from something >> there's a change in supervisor wiener's recent proposal i'm not entirely sure. >> okay. >> make some comment? >> sorry i'm move to approve the resolution with intent to approve. >> we would like to set a date september 24th i recommend the committee consider september 12th and i'll not be here for the entire month of
